why not

Sure, plenty of rifle. Watch out for "varmint" bullets when you want "game" bullets. Some .243 rds are intended for fast, dramatic expansion and not really appropriate for bigger game. A varmint slug to the head or neck would likely work fine, but thats a pretty selective shot.

Bamaboy and myself have been using the .243 a bit on deer and I am much impressed with the round in general. We're shooting 100 gr Partitions. I would likely use the same on hogs myself, in case I got a shot a a really big one and could not spine or brain it.

Sure won't bounce off.
